NFL's DeAngelo Williams Damn Right I Stiffed Waitress ... 'Service Was Horrible' (UPDATE)

Exclusive Details

update_graphic_red_bar7:52 AM PT -- More bad news for the server ... 

TMZ Sports spoke with Jimmy Marcos -- co-owner of Ledo Restaurant in Maryland -- who tells us DeAngelo's server will be TERMINATED over her handling of the tip situation. 

Long story short ... we're told the restaurant policy is "the customer is always right" and tipping is a reflection of the service -- not mandatory. 

"We were in the wrong," Marcos says.

He also has a message for Williams -- "I want to offer anything I can do. I'll be sure to apologize in person next time he visits and pick up his next meal."update-grey-gray-barPittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is blasting restaurant workers who called him out on social media for not tipping ... saying point-blank -- THEY SUCKED AT THEIR JOBS. 

It all started when the bartender at the restaurant went to Facebook and wrote:

"Just now at work I had Deangelo Williams come in and I waited on while tending bar. His check was $128.25. He left me $129 with no tip but .75 cents. So there you go Stealers fans, your running back is cheap as s**t!!! Smh."

Williams found out about the social media shaming and lashed back -- claiming the service was so terrible, a 75 cent tip was TOO GENEROUS. 

"I tried to leave exact change but couldn't," Williams said ... "I waited on my food for over 1.5 hours."

(For the record, the waitress claims he was only there for 45 mins). 

So, what was allegedly so bad?

For starters, "She never asked for refills," Williams says.

But what really pissed him off -- "I ordered chicken and shrimp in my pasta they put it on my salad."

When he pointed out the mistake, "They took it back and removed it from salad and put It in my pasta leaving a shrimp tail in the salad."

Williams says "terrible service" means terrible tip. 

"I use to wait tables and use to be a bag boy so I know what I'm doing here."

NFL's William Gay Loses Big By Winning ... Credit Card Roulette

8/26/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NFL player William Gay just learned a very important life lesson ... sometimes when you win, you completely freakin' lose in a major way ... especially when the game is credit card roulette.

Gay and his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates went out to dinner recently and the whole group of very large -- and probably very hungry -- athletes decided to settle the bill by playing credit card roulette.

If you don't know what that is ... it's when everyone who ate puts their card in a hat ... and the one that gets drawn has to foot the entire bill.

That was the story for William ... and James Harrison made sure to document the entire thing on video.

Tough break ... where's a rookie when you need one?

Breaking News

0314-martavis-bryant-GETTY-01The Pittsburgh Steelers are "disappointed" in wide receiver Martavis Bryant -- who's been suspended for at least one year after failing a drug test -- and say the 24-year-old is at a crossroads in his life. 

Bryant just announced that he would be dropping his appeal of the suspension and begin to serve his punishment immediately -- and Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says the guy needs to take the time for some serious self reflection. 

"We are very disappointed that Martavis Bryant has put himself in this current situation of being suspended by the League," Colbert says. 

"He is at a crossroads of his professional life, and he needs to understand significant changes need to occur in his professional life if he wants to regain his career as a Pittsburgh Steeler."

"We are hopeful that Martavis will take the necessary steps to develop the discipline in his personal life to become a successful player and a good teammate."

Bryant had previously missed 4 games in the 2015 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He went to rehab and worked with famed NBA coach John Lucas ... but was unable to stay on the wagon. 

James Harrison I Don't Want My Kids to Be Privileged Buttholes

3/3/2016 10:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Steelers linebacker James Harrison says there's a damn good reason he's strict with his kids -- he doesn't want them growing up to be privileged buttholes. 

Harrison appeared on the "Steve Harvey Show" to talk about his famous parenting choices -- specifically his decision to not allow his kids to accept participation trophies in sports. 

Harrison says he knows his kids have a privileged life -- but doesn't want them to be spoiled. Instead, he says he wants them to appreciate hard work and dedication. 

That's when Steve dropped the money line -- "Privileged kids man ... if you don't teach them early, they grow up to be privileged buttholes."

Harrison agreed. 

NFL's Le'Veon Bell If I Was Healthy Steelers Would Be In Super Bowl

EXCLUSIVE

They says it's better to be lucky then good ... and that's exactly what the Broncos are according to Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell ... who says it'd be his team in San Fran if he'd never gotten hurt.

Bell's been out with a knee injury since November and when we saw him at the Madden party at Super Bowl 50 we had to know ... would things have been different if he was 100%? 

Check out the clip -- Bell seems confident that had he and other Steelers been able to give it a go,  it would have been them trying to stop Cam and the gang ... and NOT the Broncos. 

Next year guys ... next year.

EXCLUSIVE

0111_antonio_brown_gettyPacman Jones can hold on to that Oscar ... or Grammy ... 'cause Antonio Brown's father insists his son is NO ACTOR ... and didn't fake hurt after taking that shot from Vontaze Burfict

TMZ Sports spoke with Eddie Brown who tells us he has already checked in with the Pittsburgh Steelers receiver to make sure he's okay after taking a shot to the head during Saturday's playoff game. 

"He is doing well. I talked to him but I didn't go into detail. I just wanted to make sure he was okay. That was my biggest concern as a father and parent."

We asked what he thought about Pacman accusing his son of faking hurt -- and Eddie told us the thought of Antonio bluffing an injury is simply unfathomable.

"It's not in his character. I don't have to defend him because you can just look at his track record. Check his and then check the track record of the ones accusing him ...  he's taken big hits before and he's gone right back to the huddle."

We also asked if he thought Burfict should be punished by the league for the hit:

"I don't set the rules, My thing is the hit happened and I'm just glad my son is okay and he is going to be playing Sunday. The team who did the hit will be at home watching."

Exclusive Details

1223-main-anonio-brown-tmz-01Pittsburgh Steelers superstar Antonio Brown had an early Xmas gift for a local high school football team -- taking the entire squad to a screening of "Concussion" ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Brown hooked up the kids at Clairton High School in Pennsylvania -- a team he's essentially adopted since joining the Steelers. 

Clairton head coach Wayne Wade tells us ... Brown organized a bus to take the players to a nearby theater and treated the kids to a night at the movies. 

1223-sub-anonio-brown-tmz-01Wayne says Brown is always doing cool stuff for the high school -- "A couple years ago he paid for the whole team to go to Dave N Busters after the season."

So, why Clairton?? 

"He loves the whole small town, small team, small program thing. We are the winningest program in Pennsylvania, piled up 66 wins in a row (Pennsylvania record), won state championships."

Plus, Wayne played Arena League football with Antonio's dad. 

So, what did we learn today ... people actually ARE going to see movies other than 'Star Wars.'
